K30160NACE Rust Preventing Characteristics Oil Bath


Test Method
Used to control corrosion in product pipelines caused by moisture condensed from gasoline and distillate fuels. Anti-rust properties are determined by immersing a polished steel test specimen in a stirred mixture of the sample and distilled water held at constant temperature.

Features and Benefits
• Conforms to NACE TM-01-72, ASTM D665* and D3603* specifications

• Accommodates six sample beakers

• Microprocessor temperature control with digital display and over-temperature protection


K30160NACE Rust Preventing Characteristics Oil Bath
Six-place constant temperature bath with stirrers for rust preventing characteristics tests. Stirs sample-water mixtures at 1000rpm and controls temperature with 0.5C (1F) stability. Immerses test beakers at the proper depth per NACE specifications. Microprocessor temperature control has C/F switchable digital setpoint and display. Operator and equipment are protected by an over-temperature control circuit which automatically interrupts power to the unit should bath temperature exceed a programmed cut-off point. Stainless steel stirrer paddles are driven at 1000rpm by an improved pulley drive-roller bearing arrangement. Paddles move to a raised position for placement of sample beakers in the bath. Stainless steel bath includes perforated support shelf for beakers and cover plate. Long lasting polyester drive belt improves reliability. Drive train components are protected by a removable steel guard. All exterior surfaces have stainless steel or chemical resistant polyurethane enamel finishes.

This equipment has been modified for safe operation when testing volatile petroleum products in accordance with NACE Standard Test Method TM-01-72.
